Each year, over 500,000 women die from complications in pregnancy and
childbirth, even though the means exist to save the vast majority of these
lives. Millions more women are disabled. The AMDD Program was established
in 1999 to work with developing countries and international agencies to
improve availability, quality and utilization of emergency obstetric care.
AMDD's overall goal as a program is to contribute to the reduction of
maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity by strengthening health
systems through expanding equitable access to good quality emergency
services and linking to other elements of the continuum of care.
